Dr. Lex will evaluate your symptoms from the context of physical function, energetic balance and spirit for life in order to determine a Global Healing treatment plan that best meets your unique needs.
Our paradigm is founded on the understanding that all body systems are interconnected, interdependent and designed to be self-correcting. By turning within to encounter our innate intelligence for health and happiness, we begin to heal ourselves and the world around us. This treatment model embodies the current scientific breakthroughs in therapeutics and energy medicine.
Once Dr. Lex evaluates your symptoms in a whole-person context, she may suggest acupuncture to address the underlying energetic cause of your symptoms. Using tiny filaments to activate the acupuncture points, she can stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. Acupuncture speeds the healing process of pain, stress, illness, and injury by balancing your internal communication system. Research and anecdotal evidence has led the World Health Organization to recommend acupuncture as the treatment of choice for over 70 maladies. More >
